K-mount counts. Q and 645 are so much less relevant for long-time Pentax users. And given the same, say, $450 tag, I'll rather buy a lens for K-mount than a lens for Q mount.
K-mount is the serious bread and butter of this poor brand.

I agree but 3 mounts is Ricoh's Pentax inheritage.
Btw, when you look at Fuji's or Samsung's last APS-C products, we should already have new f/1.4 or f/1.2 fixed lenses...
Ricoh would be irresponsive not to look/respond at it's most dangerous concurrence...

One of those mounts is a funny mount. Q is fun. But I don't want to rely on their sense of fun, and my sense of funny spending, to capture memories that matter more than "having fun".
As for the f1.4 lenses, good luck with that. I can see only a 50mm / 1.4 — and only if there is an FF announced.

I think the DA*55mm/f1.4 is good for Full Frame. So no new lens needed.

Lol, My husband needs to realize just how fortunate he is that he needs no pic, he can see his wife with a pentax all day, he needs to buy me several more cameras and I will look even better.

On an actual, serious note - it seems Ricoh has either absolutely nothing new to show at Photokina or the component supply manufacturers, NDA testers and marketing people are located in close proximity to a black hole.
Perhaps all of the above.

Hah but, yes, they are very tight lipped.

Though I believe, IIRC, the K-30 was sort of the same way before it was launched..

Apparently, some women sit around in their underwear yet wearing hoodies while petting cameras... strange bunch. I'd avoid.

No no, I was thinking about a new and updated FA50. You know, the ugly duckling one still in the lineup.
That one is still around and sells together with DA*55. It will be updated.
